About

Chef William was incredibly professional from the first phone call until that last hand shake good bye. He made himself available by phone, email or text at all hours of the day to facilitate the event planning at a time that was convenient for me. He was upbeat and enthusiastic about the event- open to suggestions, offering solutions, and always service oriented. He went over and beyond what I would have expected a chef to do all in an effort to make the event run smoothly and take some of the pressure off of me. That kind of blew me away. And the food was exceptional. I mean, really, really good— and that sentiment was shared among all my guests. And probably most surprising is that this first class service and exceptional food preparation came at an extremely reasonable price. I’ve hired many personal chefs for events over the years (and, in fact, used to own an event company) and I can say that Chef William is among the best. - M. Moynihan. Del Mar, CA

About

I was lucky enough to try her amazing food at a fabulous Hollywood Party recently and I must say, I was impressed. I worked as a food consultant for the Royal Family of Abu Dhabi (Al Nahyan Palaces) and was able to consult with some of the finest chefs in the world, I do think Denise Caplan is an exquisite chef and I would definitely recommend her to anyone hosting a fabulous event filled with Celebrities and Royal guests. I think she should have her own reality TV show, she was able to do her work and look fabulous at the same time. A woman that didn't let the heat in the kitchen get to her. Now that's Talent! Bravo Chef Denise

Isaias and his staff were wonderful. I hired him to cook two dinners and one breakfast for a girls weekend for 10 ladies. His price was extremely reasonable for all the amazing food we received. Filet mignon, salmon, tarts, lava cakes, omelette bar, fresh fruit! Plates were beautiful, vegetables were fresh and tasty. Amazing. He even went shopping for us to stock the fridge with snacks and brought us candles to light our table outside in the evening. He was friendly, professional, efficient, clean, but best of all, my guests raved about the food. I would recommend Isaias in a heartbeat. Hire him! You'll be glad you did.

About

I would love to be your personal chef and food consultant. I first started cooking at the age of 9 for my cousins. So, I have been cooking for about 30 years. I've started working in the restaurant industry in 1984. My experience extends from the back of the house to the front. My extensive experience gives me a greater knowledge of food handling, preparation, presentation, service and most important of all, taste! I loved creating a pleasant dining experience as a server. As a bar tender, I loved making a drink that was perfect for the individual, not the profit margin. My special food and drink recipes are healthy and never flavorless. Fresh vegetables and herbs and spices are essential ingredients for me. I use a combination of Asian and western cooking methods, and I apply them to the everyday comfort foods of today that you know and love. From simple appetizers to decadent desserts, I can make it happen. I currently run a weekly food booth in Palm Springs called Drunken Delicacies. All of the various grilled meats are marinated in alcohol to naturally flavor and tenderize. We have Whiskey Steak, Vodka Jalapeno Chicken, Tequila Lime Chicken and Sake Teriyaki Chicken. My desserts use fruit to hold moisture instead of fats. Such as my Strawberry Margarita Cupcakes with Lime Zest frosting or Pina Colada with Rum and Coconut frosting! I currently cater a monthly art event every first Friday at Crystal Fantasy in Palm Springs. The fare is always light and unique and I'd be mare than happy to do the same for you. I can cook a romantic dinner for 2 in your home or for a crazy party of 100, my mobile kitchen can be available. As your personal chef and food consultant, I cook based on your requests or surprise you with my own combinations. The menu can vary based on personal preferences or theme. I can even do all of the shopping necessary to help you maintain a specific dietary need or to satisfy a particular taste preference. This all helps take out the stress of food selection for you and your family. One-time event, monthly, weekly or daily services can be arranged based on your specific needs. I look forward to feeding you and yours. Thank you for your interest, Anni
